Best Wishes Card

Here is a card I created for a couple of challenges. I had this gorgeous piece of gray damask paper that I bought eons ago and wanted to use it for a wedding card. I did a monochromatic color scheme with grays and black. I almost added a gray ribbon,but decided on red for a pop of drama. I think it sets off the gray and black rather nicely and adds a bit of the unexpected.

Here is the supply list:
Cardstock- gray, pearlescent gray ,pearlescent white and black by the Paper Company
Gray damask paper- Deja Views (Sweet Romance Collection)
Stamps- bird (unknown: I bought this unmounted and it is not marked) Sentiment by Crafty Secrets
Doily by Wilton
Bling from Prima
Ribbon from Micheals

The challenges for this card are Simon Says Stamp And Show for their "things with wings' challenge and Tuesday Morning Sketches weekly sketch.
